Based out of Santa Cruz, Ca, I am a holistic freelance hairstylist and makeup artist with close to fifteen years of experience.  I was fortunate enough to find my calling at the young age of twelve years old when I box dyed my hair 606 auburn from Nice n' Easy.  I went from a natural dark dark brunette to a vibrant red head.  That was it for me!  I learned I could make a living offering wonderful, often life-changing transformations for anyone in less than a few hours...yes please!  Pairing that with my love of travel and the Nomadic Stylist was born.  After completing my BA in studio art from the University of Iowa, I headed to the flagship Aveda Institute in Minneapolis.  From The Vidal Sassoon academy in London, to NY Fashion week, to the Virgin Islands; I study, work and teach as far as I can dream!

My passion for organic, non-toxic and clean products began at 19 when I lost my mother suddenly to colon cancer.  It opened my eyes to the fragility of life and the reality that so many products we use on a day to day basis may be harmful to us and our world.  I've been on a quest since in searching for the best organic products and creating a clean environment where ever I roam.  We owe it to ourselves and mother nature!

I specialize in on-location hair and makeup services and bring a well-crafted approach to ever-evolving styles.  I always compliment my clients unique experiences through my craft and their vision.  With a commitment to bringing you a positive, stress-free experience in the comfort of your environment, I bring the high-end amenities of the salon to you.
